USAFE Electrical Fire Suppression Systems for Electrical Panels and Server Racks

Making Electrical Panels Fire Safe…

The Fire statistics show that electricity is still the main source of accidental fires in commercial buildings which can not only cause severe disruption to businesses, but can also be a threat to the buildings and their occupants.

The inability to operate your business after even a small electrical fire can be very costly and in some cases can lead to the loss of both short and long term contracts. This can be far more damaging and the consequential losses are not always fully recoverable from the insurers.

The Solution

This system uses unique patented linear detection tubing which is installed throughout the panels and cableways. This tubing can not only quickly and accurately detect a fire but also suppress it before it can damage adjacent components.

These systems do not need complex electronic detectors or panels and operate simply using pneumatics.

This alleviates the need for separate power supplies or battery backups and also makes the entire system fail safe with minimal moving parts.

How it works?

USAFE electrical fire suppression systems use the patented detection tubing which is installed throughout the enclosure and connected to the cylinder valve. The tubing is then charged with nitrogen and this pressure is utilized to hold back the extinguishant in the cylinder.

When a high temperature or fire occurs then the pressurized tubing will burst and the extinguishant will be deployed directly from the burst hole onto the fire.

This effectively means the fire has formed the discharge nozzle so it is always exactly in the right location.

A switch is also added to the system and is held closed by the pressure. Should the tubing burst or the pressure be lost for any reason then the switch will open and this signal can be used to raise an alarm.
